Jonathan Rhys Meyers & Wife Share Heartbreaking Video of the Moment They Learned of Miscarriage

Mara Lane, Jonathan Rhys Meyers‘ wife, has shared a heartbreaking video of the moment she and her husband learned that they had tragically lost their second child due to a miscarriage.

“I have been given peace and Baby Willow is now planted in the tree in front of our home that has weeping long branches and leaves so we can brush our faces in soft leaves in passing or we can see the baby dance with the wind in the branches as they sway. It is helping me process the situation … as Nature does. Thank you again Dr Stu for getting us through that as watching a sonogram not have a heartbeat is very surreal and beyond sad. Thank you Father God for supernatural peace. May you afford those who seek you the same peace and may we grow as humans and have more compassion for all humanity,” Mara wrote with the video.

Mara also added, “To the showering of love received, thank you from bottom of our hearts. I am so humbled and got teary-eyed several times at how beautiful humans can be and so sad but hopeful with the stories shared of depression and miscarriage and addictions. Thank you for sharing your soul and stories back, as this helps us feel that we are not alone.”

Our thoughts are with Mara and Jonathan as they go through this extremely difficult time.

    This is really heartbreaking, but for christ’s sake stop with the oversharing, this is a private matter, deal with it privately!!

  • TaraTeller

    Why would anyone do this? TMI. Enough already.

    A FUCKING VIDEO?? Is nothing private anymore????

  • https://twitter.com/thedreadofpenny Penny Dreadful

    It’s totally obscene, and possibly the most arrogant, vain, narcissistic thing a celebrity has ever done. I mean, I think I might have seen it all now. (Not literally, because I refuse to look at this gross, inappropriate fucking video.)

  • TaraTeller

    I’m not watching the video either. I agree with everything you wrote. Everyone knows a miscarriage is heartbreaking but damn, making a freaking video?

  • jodo

    I am aware that the Rhys Meyers’ family have gone through a terrible ordeal but sharing the video of when you’re told of a miscarriage is just….too much for a non-social media luddite like me. There’s definitely a line between sharing information and grief exploitation. I remember when JRM said that he wouldn’t answer certain personal questions for interviews and if the interviewer didn’t like it, he/she could fuck off. Now he and his wife are uploading sonograms? Definitely will make any future pleas for privacy moot. How can you ask for privacy with a straight face when you’ve shared the most personal of life events on Instagram?

    And do they want their lives to be in the tabloids? It’s if they’re asking for it. Do they want their lives to papped? Especially now they have a child?

    Lastly, I don’t understand the transparency point? Are either of them running for president in 2020? They don’t have to be transparent with anyone but themselves. As a JRM fan, I’m not asking for transparency, what right do I have to ask that of a actor I happen to like? But I do hope he takes care of himself and be healthy. I have been a long time fan and it’s sad to see him struggle with addiction for as long as I can remember.

    I agree – the transparency bit (I’m going off what you wrote; I haven’t clicked the video) is ridiculous. I wonder if this is his wife’s doing – it just doesn’t seem like something a man would come up with. Maybe his career is faltering and she thought going public with a weird sort of PSA would get him back into the spotlight?

  • https://twitter.com/thedreadofpenny Penny Dreadful

    The wife seems like a real piece of work: “Baby Willow is now planted in the tree in front of our home that has weeping long branches and leaves so we can brush our faces in soft leaves in passing”. I think this TMI stuff is all her doing, not his.

  • thecocoacritic

    She seems like an enabler. Yikes.

  • VanityInsecurity

    social media is a disease

  • HG

    I feel bad for them, but why on Earth would you share such a personal and tragic moment??!! It just demeans the entire situation.

  • BooHoo

    No one had boundaries anymore. Everything has to be for the world. keep some things private.

  • TaraTeller

    and the bane of civilization.

  • TaraTeller

    WTF? WHAT THE FUCK? You can’t bury a fetus in your yard.

  • 777

    For everyone wondering, the reason for the over-sharing is the fact that he was once again caught drunk in public. There are embarrassing photos of him being escorted by cops in the airport. This is just them trying to deflect the attention.

  • https://twitter.com/thedreadofpenny Penny Dreadful

    Um, yes you can. But the fact that someone would do this and THEN say it’s so they can have the leaves of the tree brush against their faces …. it’s just bizarre and emotionally nuts. And making all this public just puts it on a whole other level of crazy. Seriously, SHE SOUNDS CRAZY.

  • https://twitter.com/thedreadofpenny Penny Dreadful

    Oh oh oh and I just looked at that quote again – she says “PLANTED”. Not even BURIED (which I can understand someone wanting to do). Craaaaazaaaaaay.

  • TaraTeller

    That’s fucking insane. INSANE.

  • TaraTeller

    so she had a miscarriage at home and saved the “remains”? that is disgusting. no hospital would give you that. and no, you cannot bury human remains in your yard. these people are sick.

  • https://twitter.com/thedreadofpenny Penny Dreadful

    I know women who have buried their fetal remains. They view those pregnancies as children as much as their pregnancies that came to full term. They view them as deceased children, and I know some who have named those children. I also know of at least one – a devout Catholic – who baptized her baby as she was miscarrying (yes, theologically this can be done). We don’t need to argue about this – I realize a lot of people think it’s strange. It’s not strange to me that someone who carried a child in them would view the fetus as their son or daughter just as much as any parent who is excited about a pregnancy and is able to have a baby shower and bring that child to term (or even not even to term – babies can be born many weeks premature and still be healthy with a lot of help from the hospital). What I find it weird is when people talk about this stuff publicly, create an essay around it as if the public NEEDS to know this, and then talks about “planting” the remains so they can feel the child’s essence when leaves touch their face. Fuck THAT.

  • https://twitter.com/thedreadofpenny Penny Dreadful

    And … not to be argumentative but I’m still really curious why you think a hospital won’t give parents their fetal remains, or why you can’t bury human remains in your yard. People buried their loved ones in their yards for centuries before cemeteries came into existence. And even then families in very rural towns who didn’t attend religious services would create their own cemeteries on their family properties – yep, that would be a back yard, usually at the edge of a wooded area.

  • TaraTeller

    Burying a stillborn is very different from what’s left when you miscarry. I’m well aware that premmies can thrive and I didn’t need the lecture. How many months pregnant was this woman. I know plenty of people who have had miscarriages and they don’t bury or plant anything.

    Devout Catholics are weird.

  • TaraTeller

    A lot of women don’t have their miscarriages in the hospital. You’re a little crazy.

  • Kolyna

    This is a toxic relationship. Who the hell posts a video of fetal demise? This woman needs help

  • Kolyna

    It’s nuts. I pity their existing child. WAsnt he enough? Mara is a narcissistic twat

  • Kolyna

    Yes you can. Who’d announce that though?

  • Kolyna

    How does she know what gender it was?

  • https://twitter.com/thedreadofpenny Penny Dreadful

    Oh my goodness. Are you serious?? By looking at the fetal parts – reproductive parts are present and visible to the naked eye at 8 weeks. If for some reason they couldn’t see the parts, then a DNA analysis would do the trick.

  • Kolyna

    I guess. But who would go through all that trouble? DNA test at 8 weeks gestation? And why would you sift through the fetal remains to see gender? So gross. I think this is nuts tbh

  • Kolyna

    And gender isn’t seen to the naked eye at 8 weeks

  • Meredith J

    Called out her narcissistic behaviour on her IG acc. Some of her fans are busy defending her now. Narcissism and sociopathy go hand in hand – she’s not Hannibal Lector, but certainly lacks a conscience. Instead of looking at facts, they defend her, creating a perfect Karpman triangle upon which she can get further sympathy – she’s always the victim. People who go out of their way to show how sweet and trustworthy they are usually aren’t – she does that in spades, those who seem like pillars in the community often turn out to be sociopaths. Look at Bernie Madoff… the most ‘honourable’ people are usually the ones who have something to hide. And Mara’s posts are so over the top in their ‘sweetness’ you know she is fake.
